    Sperm Donors are not Dads - Advice on How to Select Sperm for IVF

    When you first think about using donated sperm to conceive a child, you might think of it as picking out a father. While sifting through candidates, thinking of the donor as strictly a donor from the get-go will help you make a clearer choice and prevent future misunderstandings. Also ask yourself some guiding questions and set parameters to help narrow down your options because cryobanks keep thousands of anonymous and non-anonymous donors at hand, and having thousands of options can overwhelm even those most determined.

    Fresh or Frozen Eggs in IVF?

    Egg donation makes it possible for thousands of women who want to get pregnant, particularly women over forty, or with fertility-related difficulties, to successfully conceive and have a baby. For many years the only eggs available were those freshly donated, but rapid advances in the technology of freezing (cryopreservation) methods, have made it possible to successfully freeze unfertilized eggs which can be used in IVF procedures or stored for later use. But which, fresh or frozen eggs, are more successful in achieving the goal of producing a healthy baby?

    The Embryo Transfer Process from Start to Finish

    Due to the need to produce multiple oocytes at once and synchronize the natural cycles of donor and recipient, fertility treatment may commence with up to a month-long round of contraception, customarily in the form of oral birth control pills (BCP). This is an important resting period for the ovaries prior to initiating daily injections of fertility drugs, such as Lupron, Nafarelin, Buserelin or Synarel.[1]

    Facts About Fertility that May Surprise You

    Although there is still no absolute guarantee of pregnancy through IVF, the chance of success through this fertility treatment is rising as more is known about fertility and the process. In the earlier days of IVF, only 12% of patients were able to get pregnant. Now, almost 60% of patients under 35 succeed in getting pregnant when they undergo IVF correctly. IVF also used to result in a worrying number of multiple births, i.e. twins and triplets. This raises the chance of pregnancy complications and problems during birth. That number has now shot down from 30% of cases to 5%.

    What is the Egg Donation Process?

    Egg donation is a process whereby a fertile woman donates an egg, or oocyte, to another woman to allow her to conceive. The egg or eggs are removed from the donor, fertilised with donated sperm in a laboratory and the resultant embryo implanted in the female recipient’s uterus using a procedure such as IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation). Egg donation is often sought by women who want to get pregnant but whose own eggs are unusable for various reasons.

    If you’re trying to conceive – could acupuncture help?

    If you’re trying to conceive, it’s good to be proactive in your efforts to conceive. Sometimes the artificial insemination process has to be supported with all possible means. One of these is acupuncture, which strengthens the immunity, improves blood flow, regulates the hormones, and reduces stress, which can have a highly negative impact on women when they are preparing for artificial insemination.

    IVF is an immense challenge. Or is it?

    At first glance, IVF, or in vitro fertilisation, doesn’t seem a complicated process; eggs are removed from the body (or from the donor), fertilised in the laboratory, then returned to the uterus, which in the majority of cases completes the process. So what’s so demanding about that? The number of horror stories on online forums has terrified many people and discouraged them from seeking treatment, describing the process as very exhausting, particularly for women. Even though it is true that IVF is, in a sense, an immense challenge, one has to look at it from several points of view and find out what can be expected from this much-discussed method.
